[Loch-ruadh] Need assistance please (kinda long)

Well folks, here I am again asking for some assistance in caring for one of
my patients. My current plea is this: I have an older gentleman that we
are caring for who due to the recent death of his caregiver can no longer
remain in his home and must go to a long term care center for 24hour
nursing care. He knows he needs to go and agrees that he does; however he
wont go unless he knows that Peanut is cared for. Whos Peanut? Peanut is
a weenie-dog with a penchant for soap operas and squirrels. Peanut has
been this gentlemans constant companion for several years and he wont go
to the LTC center unless he knows Peanut has a good home. He (my patient)
feels that if Peanut went to a shelter that Peanut wouldnt get adopted out
and therefor be euthanized. My patient states that he cannot do this to his
faithful friend just because he (my patient) is getting old; he would
rather stay home at risk to his own health.
My Plea: Can anyone give Peanut a good home? I know he gets along with
other animals as Peanut used to have another dog and cat as friends but
they have since found new homes. I cannot attest to Peanuts behavior around
small children though as to my knowledge he has not been around small
children. Peanut gets along well with adults as I have many staff members
that are over there daily caring for Peanuts human companion and their
coming and going do not bother him; once he meets you youre his friend.
Though they do have to stop and take time to pet him or he gets rather put
out <grin>. Peanut is housebroken and uses a doggie-door to go in/out.
Peanut loves watching TV and when the mood strikes him chasing the
My priority is finding Peanut a good home so that his human companion can
get the skilled medical care he needs, a bonus would be a human companion
who would bring him now and then to see his human companion. (I know that
would ease the mind of my patient knowing that he could see Peanut every
now and then).
Please let me know if you can help.
